CJAM focuses on mediation and conflict resolution, but wants to help more groups and organizations avoid conflict altogether.

CJAM offers mediation to community members to resolve a variety of conflicts, from disputes with neighbors to setting boundaries between adolescent children and parents.

It takes a brave person to raise their hand and say, ‘you know what, I really want to work this out, we’re having a difficult time communicating’…Part of what we do is allow folks the room to find a shared understanding. -David Nosko, Director of Programs

The mission of the Community Justice and Mediation Center is to promote a civil and just community through mediation, education, and restorative justice.

Their mediation programs are run by trained community volunteers, who take on a variety of conflicts, including disputes between neighbors, coworkers, parents and adolescents, landlord-tenant disputes, and more.

The Community Justice & Mediation Center (or C-JAM, as it’s sometimes called), also provides mediation and communication training for groups and organizations, with the goal of avoiding conflict rather than mediating it after it starts.

C-JAM also has a Victim-Offender Reconciliation Program which gives victims and offenders a more active involvement in the justice process, and according to their website, “research has shown that the process reduces further criminal behavior of offenders.”
